Thijs offers a French kitchen and prefers to work with seasonal products, pure and honest ingredients. The crew is highly qualified when it comes to pampering you. Thijs has style and standing and offers at the same time a unique modern atmosphere. On the first floor we have a hotel lounge and Private Dining Room for lunch or diner, with a beautiful canal view.

“Best meal in years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful food! The most tasty and finest food I've had at a restaurant for many years.
Stumbled upon it because we liked the look of the meals the staff were eating outside as we walked past! Returned that evening and the food was as tasty as it looked.
Nice atmosphere and helpful attentive staff. Would highly recommend this restaurant for a special meal to make your trip memorable.

“Charming place with a good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

We went for a business dinner there, place is not huge, but the interior is very nice. We had an agreed menu for our group, and the service was very helpful when I could not eat the seafood soup because of allergy. Fish was amazing; brownie at the end was so full of chocolate that I could not finish. All in all, it was very satisfying.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

This charming black and white restaurant is in the hotel where we stayed (Dikker). We had a fairly exhausting day and so did not feel much like going even a block or 2 from the hotel, so we decided to "eat in". What a wonderful surprise. This restaurant was great. We had the 3 course meals and all of us were very happy with our selections. The service was friendly, attentive and sympathetic. I say sympathetic because there was a large group (about 30) of older people having dinner and they would not allow a bit of fresh air to be let into the restaurant. However the staff worked it out. Also the service was excellent in spite of having this large group to serve.

“Excellent dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

A pleasant dinner with a warm welcome and attentive service. The soft crab starter was delicious, beef for main course tasty, but a little dry. Desserts were delicious. Wine was a reasonable price and staff were friendly. We would revisit.

“Quiet quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Quality food and a quiet environment, at least in the morning. Be sure to try the scrambled eggs, and the various spreadable cheeses.
